Commissioned to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, Sergei Eisenstein's film uses montage and a documentary style to present the events of the Bolshevik uprising in 1917. The resulting footage has often been mistaken for genuine newsreel, although some 1917 footage (shot by Esther Shub) was incorporated.
